Received product fast and is just as ordered.
Used this to make hooks in fused glass products. Works great!
I ordered 17 gauge wire. It’s just right. Strong enough for support and yet not difficult to manipulate into desired form. One roll of wire is good for a small to medium size project.
I ordered the 17 gauge wire, and I was a little concerned about the thickness because I didn't want it to be too thick. I slump bottles on a regular basis, and wanted to bend the wire to make a decorative hanger. This wire exceeded my expectations! It was Heavy enough to hold several pounds, but workable enough to create decorative elements in the hangers. It fires to 1375 degrees well, there's no discoloration of the wire, and I couldn't be happier!
This will be my "go to" wire for fusing from now on. I love that it comes on a spool which makes it much easer to manage. As always, great customer service and shipped quickly.
